  • well i did it again!!(my new ride)

    well like i said when i joined the other day i was fed up of having no car so i went on a 3hr drive to buy something new today!

    as always its a JDM import.

    this folks is my new EPIC ride. (crappy phone pic on the drive home)



    shes a 1997 JDM celica ST202 - SS-iii limited edition. (180 bhp) (133.1 kW) , has the super strut suspension from the GT4 and full TRD factory brace kit including rear leather brace cover.

    has the original boot liner (very rare) , micro wind deflectors , celica sill plates , air con , leather door cards and arm rest , nicer seats , twin air bags , has had uprated bushes fitted and new clutch.
    has only had 1 owner and done 110,000 kms and thats nothing for this engine (revised 3sge) , got a few marks on the paint and body but its an old car so i expect that. but most important is the chassis and engine and interior are all like new no rust no stains or rips with time money and effort i will make her in to a street weapon.

    more pics and updates to come.

        looks awesome mate, glad you will remove the rude stripes.... I must admit my first thought (before reading your post) was "I hope he will rip those hideous stripes off"

                right thanks to British weather didnt get much done today other than sorting insurance and paperwork etc .

                did clean up this human slime to reveal the nice genuine jdm factory matt's that are amazing considering there 17yrs old.


                then a quick 5min clean of the boot to start cleaning that rare load liner and also gave the leather cover for the rear brace a clean too.


                loving how many epic hira/kata sticker and warnings are on this one. (so much jdm goodness)


                and then there's this beast my 2000 twin cam 16v 3S-GE mk2 engine

                  Are you going to keep the pin striping?
                  They told me I could be anything,
                  so I became a nugget.

                  I do Range Rover, Volvo, Peugeot and Jaguar parts for Sydney. I can also help with VW, Honda and BMW parts.

                    no there nasty stick on ford escort style "go faster" stripes they look shit on a celica its completely the wrong shape for them. if its dry tomorrow i will hit them with a heat gun and get them off.

                      right todays update

                      no detail or stripe removal as weather has been rubbish and i was busy.


                      this is the mini disk head unit that needs to go ASAP!


                      also need to get a gearknob as this one is worn and full of years and years of sweaty human slime


                      also managed to find a steering wheel i had from my last build that will be perfect for the celica once cleaned and styled a bit.


                      and some speakers to start the audio upgrade as well


                      did find a steel race pedal set as well and went to fit them but the accelerator pedal is a molded part on a strange clip and i want to know how to remove it properly and how much a new one would be as i might have to cut and drill it to fit the new pedal on to the top. so that will wait till after some research.

                        haven't done any mods yet as been too busy driving it. such a good car this one it really is fun with the extra power of the jdm engine and the super strut suspension lots of touge runs over the moors and coast roads the past few days.

                        a new pic (going to fix the number plate holder tomorrow)


                        and proof that it is practical - took a mate too pick some wheels theres 3 18' rs4 audi wheels with tyres 1 wheel with no tyre and 3 loose tyes in there and we both got in the front with room for a bucket of KFC!
